Until recently, physical stores were the preferred channel for apparel shoppers, accounting for over 80% of sales. In-store shopping offers engaging customer experiences: shoppers treasure hunt for products, get inspired by intriguing visual merchandising concepts, and can touch and try on products in private fitting rooms. Alternatively, online stores—while convenient—have had a lower customer experience index thanks to taxonomy-based catalogs and cookie-cutter purchase paths.
The delight of physical retail spaces seemed to elude online stores—until now.
Enhance the online shopping experience
VERA is an advanced, AI-powered platform that brings the delightful experience of in-store shopping to digital stores. Using AI and visual search, VERA enables online shoppers to explore, get inspired, and visualize their selections in an immersive way, similar to physical stores.
Transform outdated taxonomy-based catalogs into smart catalogs that enable real-time, adaptive, theme-based shopping (search by trend, keyword, event, etc.) powered by VERA’s advanced trend-spotting algorithm. Fashion trends are abstracted from online media (social media, blogs, events, etc.) and used to create contextual assortments to inspire digital shoppers.
